A- Can poured to a tall chalice for the review with a orange-mid amber body. A foamy, frothy cap forms on the beer to above one finger with pretty good retention. A thick ring remains with hazy islands and lacing starts with plentiful webs leading to spots below.

S- Mostly clean yeast but some light fruit esters are present like apple. Rye spice and sweetness is prevalent with caramelized malts, stone fruit and citrus hops and hints of wheat.

T- Fruity overall with apple, grape, apricot and citrus notes coming in towards the beginning. Malts deliver a heavy dose of rye spiciness and a sweetness I often find only in rye brews. Crystal grains, yeast spice, dry fruit and slight wheat bread come to mind.

MF- Silky, silky, silky smooth body with a creamy and slightly chewy overall feel. The carbonation is medium-high but the rye leaves a cushion of silk. Slightly bitter finish.

There are sips of this beer that I find to be good and some sips that just seem to not really come together all that well, probably more of the latter. I like the elements that make it up but the final flavor just doesn't work out for me. The rye's spice and sweets clash sometimes with the citrus which clashes with the apple and grape fruit flavors present. Not bad by any means but I don't think the vision results in a balanced final product.

Poured from a can into a beer stein.

A - Slightly hazy light orange color with a fluffy, three-finger white head. Ringlets of sticky lacing.

S - Moderate strength aroma of caramel malt, fig, apple skin, and rye.

T - Tastes almost nothing like it smells. Sweet caramel malts, but also lots of candied fruit; hints of grape and apple. Really interesting and unique. Hops difficult to pick out; what is there for is definitely of the "earthy" variety. Rye spiciness in the mid-palate. A hint of alcohol comes through in the finish.

M - Medium bodied, with prickly carbonation. Slightly drying finish.

O - Unlike any other bock I have had by a long shot, and I really enjoyed the interplay between the fruity hops, sweet malts, and spicy rye. Would definitely buy again if sold in singles.
